Med Oncologist Recommendations

Can anyone recommend a Medical Oncologist specializing in PCa at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore/Washington Region? My Radiation Oncologist is at JH and would like to stay in that system if possible.

I don't know any of the docs but there is a lot of info on the website. If you search Google for

( prostate cancer doctors at johns hopkins ) you'll get lots of hits.

The following page shows all of the PCa specialists:

hopkinsmedicine.org/kimmel_...

The first group lists seven medical oncologists with specialties that include prostate cancer. If you click on the names you'll find more on their treatment and research (they're all research scientists) specialties and something about their backgrounds. Two of the links didn't work for me but the others all did.

I have a suspicion that it's hard to go wrong with any of them. Also, if I read their web page correctly, they meet regularly to discuss cases so that, hopefully, if someone has a poor idea or misses a good one, one of the others will bring it to their attention.

You may find that some have very full appointment schedules. That may be a factor in your choice.

Good luck.

I see Dr. Michael Carducci at Johns Hopkins. I'm coming up on ten years seeing him! I have a great deal of respect for him--and he for his patients. Good luck!

That's great, I was hoping for some first hand experience. I hope to speak with with Dr. Carducci. Thanks very much.

A friend of mine battled his PC using a Dr named Eisenberger. I think that is the name. He was his Dr for maybe 7- 8 years.

Thank you for that information, I will try and find him.

Yes, Dr. Carlucci is the head honcho. Those who work with him are more likely to have an opening; that's the route I took about four years ago and have no regrets. You have the Hopkins resources, clinical trials, and team consult on your case. See who you can and then decide!
